I’ve never been into fake rings. My mother is a jewelry addict and she always was dripping in real diamonds. I’ve never been much of a diamond person myself, even though I own a ton of them (mostly, because of her). I will admit to being skeptical when I found out I’d be receiving this Berricle ring to review… now I am kind of flabbergasted- especially considering the price ($56.90- plus an additional 30% off coupon code right now).
Here is a LINK to the ring and the description:
“This solitaire with side stones ring is made of rhodium plated fine 925 sterling silver. Band measures 2.5mm in width. Features 1.86 carat oval cut cubic zirconia (9mm x 7mm) in 4-prong setting. Accented with 0.47 ct.tw round cut cubic zirconia in micro pave setting. Nickel free.”
When I opened the box, I couldn’t believe how real it looked (compared to my real diamond jewelry) and how heavy the weight was. It sparkles exactly like a real diamond!
I was told that many people have been buying Berricle and other synthetic diamonds, such as ASHA and NSCD/Sona rings, as ‘stand ins’ for their real jewelry. I can now see why they would! These aren’t your run of the mill fakes!
With my genuine/antique/real rings, I am constantly worried that I will lose stones. It’s EXPENSIVE to get stones replaced- especially if you have heirloom pieces with one-of-a-kind gems.
Not with this ring. I plan on wearing it and not worrying about it. Also, I am curious to see how long it stays beautiful and shiny with regular use.
I will keep this on and see how it holds up in the future and report back.
